I played the Asphalt 8. The game is playable in high visual quality mode, game play was smooth.

Camera-Key feature
The best thing on the Zenfone 2 Laser is the camera. There is a 13MP camera on the rear that makes use of Laser to get a faster focus. Front camera is of 5MP resolution. Rear camera comes with dual LED flash support and it can shoot 1920 x 1080p videos.

There are a lot of camera mode including night mode that reduces the megapixel resolution but captures brighter shot in very low light conditions. Then there is the super resolution option – in this mode users can shoot images in up to 52MP resolution.
